Two posts in one weekend! Does anybody even read blogs on the weekend?? Hello?? Mom?
I am finally getting to a point where I feel like I'm getting my running groove back, my cadence is pretty consistent instead of all over the place, and I feel pretty comfortable. So yay. I also am starting to add some faster pacing into the mix which is fun sometimes hard, but alas, I still have no idea what kind of time goal I'm going to shoot for come race day. I feel like a PR is waaay out of reach, but I have a buncha heavier weeks of training ahead in some cooler temperatures, so despite always wanting full control of everything life, I shall wait a little longer to figure that out.
My mom was in town for a bit of this week, so we got to do some running together!! I drop the baby monitor next to her bed, and we head out. Waking up to grandma is probably a whole lot more fun than regular ole mom (ME).
Ben is rocking his training! This weekend he ran a 15 miler which is the longest run he's done (he's run 15 a few times this year while training for the 1/2), but next weekend will be a new distance record for him.
I love the areas I run! I love the regulars I see out there also running, walking, even picking up garbage every morning because there are GOOD people out there in this nutty world. It is the best and such a boost to exchange GOOD MORNINGS.
My mother-in-law was also in town, and her cute, 2 lb dog, Tashi, wanted to stretch with me. It must be a dog thing, cuz Rykar bombards me whenever I'm stretching. Now that I think of it, so does my child.
14 miler this week. Then 16. Then a 1/2. Then 18. That's as far as my long runs are scheduled and it's getting me excited. Maybe I will get up to 20 after all.
HAVE A GREAT DAY!!
